just got a 2008 F-350 King Ranch yesterday wooohhooo

As the title says I picked it up yesterday and wow what a gorgeous truck. It smells like a saddle shop! Pulled my 32 foot travel trailer with it today and it did great! I would like to do the deletes more for the mileage increase than the power but dont want to mess up the warranty. I think I will put an aftermarket intake/filter for now and hope that helps. Guys seem to be reccomending the S&B intake if I dont want to run a tuner yet; and not get the CEL coming on.

yeah s&b is my choice over any other.. cost wise or not... but you're really not gonna see much gains over stock until you get a delete and tuner... it's all about cfm needed and cfm delivered

Any gain in power without the tuner? I will talk to the dealer tomorrow and see how they feel about tuners, some of them around here seem to be willing to overlook them.

I just bought a used 2008 F250 6.4L power stroke. The gas mileage is killing me!! Can anyone recommend the best delete kit/tuner - at least one that's working ok for themselves.
